    Better Than Lamaze

    I used Lamaze with my first and had a hard time feeling in control. When contractions got too strong and I wasn't breathing 'right' I got frustrated which led to being more tense and upset. Bradley method was completely opposite. My husband took over and made sure I had everything I wanted, and I remained relaxed and in control. Now that #3 is on the way I want my own copy instead of renewing the library's for 7 months straight! I recommend this for all my pregnant friends!
